His work has been the recipient of many awards including the 2000 Joseph V. Giffuni Memorial Award from the Pastel Society of America

Medium: Pastel
Subjects: Landscape; Kimball comments : "the elements that I portray are evocative of man’s influence upon the land – the farmsteads, the fields, the roads – all of which have their stories to tell, of generations come and gone. Many of the older buildings hold a particular appeal in that they appear not so much to have been built on the land but more that they seem to have grown from the land.”
Style: Contemporary realism.
